Jackson Township is working with constituent leaders to increase police presence to ensure safety
Jackson Township, October 12, 2023: The Offices of the Mayor, Police Department and Township Administration are acutely aware of the heinous terrorist attacks in the Nation State of Israel, as well as the offensive and dangerous rhetoric by nefarious actors calling for continued violence against practitioners of the Jewish faith. Neither hateful words nor hate-driven acts will be tolerated in our community.
Township authorities are partnering with our constituent leaders to increase law enforcement presence and preparedness. Municipal Police patrols are being increased, Sheriff's Officers are being deployed, and additional preemptive countermeasures taken to ensure the safety and well-being of all Township residents.
All residents are asked to be vigilant as well, and to immediately report any suspicious persons or activity. Working together, we can keep our community a great, and safe, place to live.
